The Pentagonal Dream

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Sebastian Barry 

  • Synopsis

    In The Pentagonal Dream a single figure speaks with five separate male voices. The voices do not talk directly to one another and appear to be different people, but each is a strand of the whole man. Each voice tries to explain, justify and in the end, understand. The voices can be identified by their order of appearance: Father, Murderer, Storyteller, Fetishist and Messiah/Anti-Christ.
